Mahou Shoujo Angelic Buster -- WIP by Gellert-Grindelwald
Mahou Shoujo Angelic Buster -- WIP
This is what I've been working on since December, lol. Through looking up how people get those smooth lines in Fire Alpaca, I've discovered the watercolor brush and am loving the effects. Though I may do another one like the Christmas pic if I want something with that look again, though.
Anyway, this is the WIP version, although it's close to completion. (I want to reshade some things, and I need to complete the background). The idea came from the fact Angelic Buster is a parody of magical girls in the first place. I wanted to create a manga cover based on the idea of Angelic Buster actually being the 'regular' magical girl, since AB has a lot of the tropes associated with magical girls. I decided just to use the love interest, the love rival, the second love interest, and... well, there are some manga where the villain is also a love interest (and Magnus DOES hit on Angelic Buster, so..), so I included Magnus as a possibility as well.
I left Eskalade out of this because.. well, it'd be hard to place him. ^^;.
Anyway, I think it's coming along well. I've also toyed with the idea of making an actual doujinshi based on this idea, but I'm not sure if I will or not. I'm kinda lazy lol. ^^;. I even have who she'd go with in mind..
Though I'm not sure how it'd happen. Hint: It's not Kyle. I don't like Kyle x Tear as a pairing, personally. Kyle's a jerk to her as a kid, then when he grows up, he treats her as if she's useless and only moral support. NO THANKS. D:. Angelic Buster is supposed to defeat bad guys and be a hero. Not some pop idol princess like he seems to want her to be. It'd definitely be Magnus x AB or Velderoth x AB. The game doesn't do anything with this, but I hate the canon so bad in this case. D:.
CyniKarma, for Xenomata by Gellert-Grindelwald
CyniKarma, for Xenomata
The second request from MapleStory forum user Xenomata. This is the first time I fully colored (well.. mostly--I had to use ink for the black parts because my black marker was thrown in the washer. D:.) anything with Prismacolors, and I'm pleased with the result. I also had to mix in some gray from my colored pencils to get the gray I needed, too, and unfortunately had to clean some minor parts up digitally again. We never seem to have whiteout around here. D:. Anyway, that's all for today. I'll post the remaining ones I like later. And again, for all of them, check my Tumblr. (
KereLambda, for Xenomata by Gellert-Grindelwald
KereLambda, for Xenomata
The third request from official MapleStory forum member Xenomata. I did do some editing digitally (mostly stray lines), but everything else was traditional medium. This is probably my favorite of the ones I did for Xenomata, and it took a really long time to get the colors right. Chaos Root Abyss gear is a serious pain to color. D:
I do have one more pic to upload for this person, but wanted this one up first. I think with these, I'm just going to put up the ones that came out well and post the others to my Tumblr. So you guys aren't flooded with these lol. My Tumblr can be found on my journal page, if you want to see the others that I'm not sharing. Today, I'll just post the ones for Xenomata. I think there may be a few others, but I'll post those a different day.
*hopes that it still qualifies as traditional even though I made minor digital changes* >_<;. My hand is shaky for some reason all the time, so I get a ton of stray lines. It's annoying. D:.
I finally posted something that's not just a forum request. :). It took me forever to do, but I finally finished the Luka pic I had been working on. It took me forever because GIMP was initially refusing to behave. It originally kept crashing. And even when I could get it to work, it wasn't coming out how my older pics did. It just didn't look very good. Within the last month, I finally discovered the airbrush, and realized it was exactly what I had wanted. :).
Other than that, I have one more pic I'm working on. It's MapleStory related again, and is only a few months old. Unlike the Luka one.. >_<;.
There is one more I kind of like that I may scan (the art's old now, so I won't color it), but that's all. I've been really busy with forum requests and asks lately, so I haven't had time (and honestly, inspiration) for anything else. D:. I need to draw something else, but I don't have anything in mind. It's been like this for months. >_<;. I got one more big idea, then nothing. It's really annoying. Maybe I'll do something else Maple related (perhaps expand upon a sketch I did that I never posted here), dunno. I've been into Fate/Stay Night and Sword Art Online lately too, so maybe I'll do some Fate/Stay or SAO art. And there's almost no Pandora Hearts art of Lily, so that's a possibility too. Or maybe something original..
Anyway, I'm back now. For now, anyway. :). I do have one more pic to post (one regular, anyway. I also have some forum requests to post), but that'll be done another day.

Hi. :). I'm Filia Ryuuza, aka Reine Schelmisch/Elise Grimwald (it depends on the site). I've been drawing since I was 8 years old, but only started trying to learn using How-to books when I was 15. I still feel that I have a long way to go, however. ^^;. And it's been 10 years since I began drawing seriously. I joined Deviantart on July 4th, 2003 (on my old account), and have loved it here ever since. In addition to drawing, I make wallpapers occasionally. However, I can't post them here. :(.
As for influences on my art.. I don't particularly emulate one artist. I've tried to make a style that's my own. I do, however, really enjoy the works of Ken Akamatsu, Cocoa Fujiwara, Mayumi Azuma, Aoi Mizuki, Studio R.R.O.C. (I loved their Harry Potter doujinshi), Yuna Kagesaki, Arina Tanemura, Yana Toboso, Hiromi, Kara, and Yuzu Mizutani.
In addition to drawing, I also enjoy writing fiction. I'm working on a novel titled "Moonlit Night". It's REALLY slow going for me, though. I also write and draw my own webcomic, which can be seen either on here, or on the website below. I also enjoy video games, particularly RPGs. I also love anime and manga, and am a HUGE fan of the Harry Potter series (as can be seen by my username. XD.).
I'm going to leave some of my old profile info, as well. Thanks for reading this, and I hope that you enjoy my art.

Old profile info that I think is relevant:
Favourite genre of music: Alternative, Rock, Soft Rock, Pop (to an extent), Japanese music such as Vocaloid music
Favourite style of art: Anime, Soft celled CG, painted
Shell of choice: Magic Conch. XD
Favourite cartoon/anime/game character: Gaav, Fate Averruncus, Klaus(Nya), Asuna Kagurazaka, Jeanne, Lemina Ausa, The Warden, Brian Griffin, Yuki Cross (As Cross, not Kuran), Megurine Luka (does she count?), Makoto Sawatari, Neinheart, Fang the Sniper, Grell Sutcliff, Ciel Phantomhive, Alice (Pandora Hearts), Vaughn (Harvest Moon), Pierre (Harvest Moon)
Personal Quote: "For the Greater Good"

It would be awesome if you did. :). I love seeing MapleStory cosplays. It's really a shame they're so rare. >_<;. Fortunately, you still have quite a bit of time to make it. Fortunately for me, too. ^^;. I only have a few of the things I need for my cosplay. :(.
And that's great to hear. :). I've been going for years too (this will be my 11th year). :). And yes. We do. XD. I would love for the gathering to become a reality. There's only been one other to my knowledge, and that wasn't at ACen. We need to remedy that. XD. I've already made a post about it on Tumblr, and have already gotten one other person that would be interested. Maybe a post on the main MapleStory forum or one of the fansites would work? I'll see what the rules are regarding that on those forums, and post there.
